Why choose Stormforce Coaching for this course?:
When we first became a Powerboat Training Centre our Principal had well over a decade of experience as a full time dinghy, multihull and windsurf Instructor. He had developed a range of techniques for coping with various craft. Another 8 years on and we have further developed these techniques. Over the years we have invested in various resources to ensure we can run this course properly.
You are guaranteed plenty of practical experience in up-righting, towing and dealing with single-handed dinghies, double handed-dinghies, other powerboats, windsurfers and kayaks. Few centres can provide the variety of resources to cover all of these scenarios in two days, but as with all of our courses we believe that having to resort to theory sessions as an alternative to actually trying out skills is a very ineffective way of learning and a poor use of your time.
Individual Person Price: £299
